Woman Allegedly Dragged From Car After Pulling Into Her Driveway

A woman has been allegedly attacked when pulling into her own driveway on Friday evening.

The 29-year-old was arriving at her home in Dubbo in central New South Wales when a man opened the passenger door of the car she was driving. He allegedly took the woman's belongings from the car.

The man then allegedly assaulted her by grabbing her head and pushing her into the opposite car door and window. This resulted in a head injury.

The woman was then pulled from the vehicle by a second man. The pair then allegedly took the car and left the woman on the street.

NSW Police told 10 daily there is no indication the woman's car doors were locked.

Police arrested a 52-year-old man at a home in Narromine, about 40 kilometres west of Dubbo on Saturday afternoon. Police took the man to Dubbo Police Station where he was charged with aggravated robbery.

Police are still searching for the second man involved in the incident and the woman's belongings and car have not been found.

The 52-year-old man will face Dubbo Local Court on Monday.

NSW Police recommends drivers travel with their doors locked and windows up to minimise the risk of car-jacking or robbery.

"When you’re driving, keep your car doors locked and your windows up if possible," the NSW Police website reads.

Police also recommend motorists keep personal belongings on the floor or behind the front seats while driving.
